Excerpt: These are some great sounding Headphones. They are very natural and have nice smooth silky high end. The low end is present, but not over exagerated. The headphones fit on my head well, and don't squeeze. so i don't have a headache after and hour of use. They only problem is they don't get very loud. they require an amp to use in a live sound situation.
Excerpt: These headphones have a beautiful middle range and I'm sure after some breaking in the low and high would have been great. Unfortunately, these headphones have a self-adjusting strap that makes them uncomfortable after just a few minutes. Perhaps I have a sensitive head, but these had to go back.
Summary: Very comfortable with a nice clamp (coming from a senn head-vice user), especially so with the velour pads. Fairly neutral sound, slight emphasis on higher vocal region. Very open sounding even when compared to similarly priced open-backs. Fits very well with piano but not recommended for a bass-head or most southern rock.
Summary: Comfortable and light but very quiet, minimal low ends, the plastic feels cheap. Overral sound quality is a lot clearer than your normal shop floor headphones in this price range. I dunno, I just expected better considering the reviews.
Summary: I have enjoyed using these headphones for playing a piano. However, they once or twice fell on the floor, and all of a sudden one side stopped functioning and they turned mono, left ear only. Since I am a lot into DIY, I opened them to fix them. I did not like what I saw. OMG! What a crappy build quality. The cups are fixed to the over-the-head band with tiny and fragile plastic pieces which are just waiting to be shattered.
Summary: bought these largely guided by other reviews. the sound is pretty good although i think with hindsight i would get open ones. don't like the auto mute when you take them off which i only became aware of when it was too late, via another reviewer who also thought this a bad idea. he said his were already starting to give him problems.
AKG K-271 MKII studio hoofdtelefoon met mute schakelaar

Summary: Na verschillende jaren sennheiser te hebben gebruikt wilde ik wel iets anders, en kocht ik op aanraden de AKG K271. Goeie koptelefoon met een zeer neutrale klank, ideaal voor de studio. Aan de heren Deejays geef ik de raad deze koptelefoon niet te kopen. De mute switch is zeer gevoelig waardoor je de koptelefoon altijd recht op je hoofd moet plaatsen. Jammer dat je deze switch niet kan uitschakelen.
